9780028974064: Icanchu's Drum: An Orientation to Meaning in South American Religions

This is an introduction to the religions of South America, taking in the full gamut of religious beliefs, from the Aymara and Quechua of the Andes to the Carib and Tupi of the Amazon Basin. Lawrence Sullivan ranges through the different traditions to examine the practices, myths, symbols, rituals, deities and institutions of the various religions - presenting them from four aspects: "Beginnings", cosmology, anthropology and the "Meaning of the end". The book travels from primal religious experience with nature to the creation of gods and goddesses: from the cycles of life to native images of what it means to be human, to work, create and die.
